    Before and After

    I've been tring to decide on what forum to put this in for a whlie, and I finally decided that the picture gallery would be the best place.

    The intent of this thred is to show off before and after photos of builds you guys do for yourselves and others.

    Some highlights of the SPR-type rifle I'm building for my wife:
    - Iron Brigade Armory match upper with Hart Stainless 1:8 20" barrel
    - War Sports lower

    Ive sent some parts out for ceracoating and they *should* be ready by Monday, so hopfully the pict will be up by Tuesday! I wanted to post the before and after shots on the same day but I got to excited and couldn't wait to start the post!

    Man,

    Thanks Kevin....thanks haha. And I like these threads as well. Always cool to see how people put their rifles together. I will definitely be subscribing to this one.

    Schambers we gotta get the wives to post a review after the builds are done.

    I'm just going to call you Compufabulous... because that's what I keep thinking for some reason when I see that alphabet soup

    I wrapped it up tonight! We Zero and confirm this weekend.

    I didn't intend to keep this thread to myself. If anybody has some before and after photos, feel free to share them.

    The upper was made by Iron Brigade Armory with barrel by Hart. I ran into the owner from IBA at a gun show and he told me the upper was part of a limited run that they made for Bushmaster some years ago.
    I replaced the hand guard they had with a Troy and put in a Troy low profile gas block
    The scope is a Leopold 8-16x Mark AR
    The lower receiver is from War Sports, in conjunction with Legion Firearms
    Magpul PRS
    BAD 45 selector
    Tango Down grip
    The lower parts were from Palmetto State Armory
    The bipod is a Harris on a GG&G mount
    Scope mount is from SWFA
    The sling is from Blue Force Gear. The QD mount on the rail is Noveski and the DQ on the PRS was from Brownells.
